Gig Harbor Literary Society: The Lathe of Heaven


Registered on 2017. 04. 29

May 2nd 2017 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Zachary Sokolik | (253) 858-6722 | marketing@harborhistorymuseum.org 
Location: Harbor History Museum, 4121 Harborview Dr

Harbor History Museum and the Gig Harbor branch of the Pierce County Library invite you to join the Gig Harbor Literary Society, dedicated to exploring the literary world of historical fiction, nonfiction, and other works of interest. 

The May meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 2nd at 6:00pm at the Harbor History Museum.

The book for the May meeting is The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula K. Le Guin. A classic science fiction novel by Ursula K. Le Guin, one of the greatest writers of the genre, the book is set in a future world where one man's dreams control the fate of humanity.

Racked by violence and environmental catastrophes, George Orr wakes up one day to discover that his dreams have the ability to alter reality. He seeks help from Dr. William Haber, a psychiatrist who immediately grasps the power George wields. Soon George must preserve reality itself as Dr. Haber becomes adept at manipulating George's dreams for his own purposes.

The Lathe of Heaven is an eerily prescient novel that masterfully addresses the dangers of power and humanity's self-destructiveness, questioning the nature of reality itself. It is a classic of the science fiction genre.

Attendees are welcome to bring an appetizer or dish to share with fellow bibliophiles. The Museum will provide complimentary non-alcoholic beverages. Enjoy a drink while you talk books? You are welcome to BYOW! (Bring Your Own Wine!) Library and Museum staff will lead the discussion. Materials will be available for checkout at the Gig Harbor Library, as well as for purchase online at Amazon.com.

This event is FREE and open to the public. Seats are limited; RSVPs are encouraged. To RSVP or for questions, please contact Zachary Sokolik, Marketing & Events Coordinator, at marketing@harborhistorymuseum.org or 253-858-6722.
